Not long ago, the netizens and rap lovers went crazy over the news of the rap world’s star Snoop Dogg changing his name. In 2012, Snoop was in the celebrity headlines for converting to the Rastafari religion and claiming to be reborn. After a trip to Jamaica, he changed his name to Snoop Lion. But why did he do that? Years of Snoop Dogg and now Snoop Lion? How could this be?

Snoopy opened up about why he changed his name and said that after converting, he changed his music style from rap to reggae and wanted his name to depict all the changes going on in his life. According to him, the priest at the temple he went to disliked his name and told him, "No more!" The priest said that he was light; he was a lion. All in all, the main idea behind the name change was to be reborn; you need a new identity. Some followers were indifferent towards this, but many were shocked, and Snoop faced a lot of criticism.
